  • Heartland 2013
    • Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone: Janet Farrar is probably one of the best known names in witchcraft, especially when addressing witchcraft in the UK. She and her first husband, Stewart, wrote many books that are still be referenced today by Elders and novices alike. Gavin Bone, Janet’s second husband (hand picked by Stewart and the Goddess Freya), has over two decades of experience in witchcraft and other forms of mysticism. Together they present workshops, classes, and write. At Heartland they present workshops on energy work and a look at the evolution of wtichcraft in the 21st century.
    • Ed “the Pagan” Hubbard: Is the former CEO of Witch School International, recently retired First Elder of the Correllian Nativist Tradition and the CEO of Paganics. Most of us at PMPChannel know him as one of the hosts of Pagans Tonight, a nightly Pagan podcast on BlogTalkRadio. This was our second time seeing Ed at Heartland. Always a good time to sit and visit with him. Ed did several worshops on Pagan Leadership: How Pagan Are You?, The Path to Pagan Prosperity, Growing a Pagan Village, Pagan Leadership Training Raw and Conquering Your World.
    • Mike Nichols is the author The Witches’ Sabbats. He is an author, musician and former radio personality in the KC area. Mike’s worshop was called Wicca’s Blackcloth: The Occult in American History. In this workshop he covered the early influences on occultism in the Americas and how those influences helped shape modern Wicca, at least from an American perspective.
    • Tuatha Dea: Not only did this fabulous Pagan/Blues/Country/Folk band perform for the main concert of the weekend, but they taught a couple of worshops. Both aimed at the younger members of the Pagan community. Teen Team Building for Unity was an interactive rhythm event structured around the use of rhythm as a developmental tool and catalyst for building community through the power of the drum. Child’s Play introduced the truly young (and young at heart) to the basics of drumming for music and ritual use.
    • other honored guests and musicians:
      • Brian Henke, musician
      • Joshua Messick, hammered dulcimer
      • The Vine Brothers, featuring Joe Credit, Jr
      • Viridis, featuring Beltana Spellsinger
    • Finally, but no least: Food in the dining hall was prepared by Food on Wheels from Minnesota. Fabulous food. The chili feed Thursday night was provided free of charge to all attendees and was delicious. Their breakfast buffet was scrumptuous. We provided the rest of our own meals, so we cannot speak to their lunch and dinner menu. After tasting what they had to offer we wish we had purchased the meal plan. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to find a web address for these wonderful cooks and their kitchen crew.

Towards the end of April, RevKess sat down via Skype with Robert McClung and talked about Telergy and the Lgend of Goody Cole. This weekend’s edition is the result of that conversation.

Here at Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel we strive to have a new episode for you every Saturday evening as well as our Pagan Weekly News and the occasional other programs like Musica Pagani, Lavender Hill and Selections from the Mess. Starting on June 5th, we are adding a brand new show to the line up. Home of the Ancestors with host Julian Marcus. We will continue to produce our regular shows and keep working on adding more and more to our line up for your listening pleasure and education.

Feel free to drop us an email about this or any other show at paganmusings@gmail.com or one Facebook. (Editing note from RevKess: Please forgive the background noise. I was multitasking during the interview and my keystrokes were picked up much loader than I had expected.)

Now on to the show notes for Saturday 25 May 2013: Telergy and the Legend of Goodie Cole:GCole

Mess Play List for 051913

Murf's Blue DragonMichelle from the Red Grail visited Murf, Kate and Phil at the studio this morning. She brought in a lovely little blue dragon statue for Murf. Would seem that the fae had been playing around with Michelle’s figurine collection and knocked the dragon shelf off. The dragon was perfectly up right, but the shelf was on the floor as at an angle. Now the little dragon is sitting at Murf’s home along with all her other dragon friends.

International Day Against Homophobia

IDAHOT logoFriday the 17th of May is the International Day Against Homo/Bi/Transphobia. Official referred to as the International Day Against Homophobia, it is a day to take whatever steps you feel necessary (within reason) to combat homo/bi/transphobia in your community. Even the United Nations Human Rights Office has stepped up and gotten involved by releasing a video.  This little video is only one thing that you can share to spread the word against h/b/t-phobia.

On Lavender Hill we do what we can to spread the word about intolerance, bigotry, persecution and violence against members of the LGBTQA+ community. Corwin and Phil are both openly out in the community and often take a stand on these issues, both on and off the air. It can be as simple as stepping up and defending someone against hateful words or as extreme as marching on the Capital steps to demonstrate in support of LGBTQ+ issues.

Around the globe their organizations that can help you get involved:

Around the blogosphere there are a number of articles covering IDAHO, here are just a few:international-day-against-homophobia

How are you going to step up and take a stand on Friday?

Mother’s Day on the Mess – 051213

ad bannerHello, my friends! Sorry for any delay in the posting of the play list from Mother’s Day. Been a rather hectic week. But it is here, finally!

As you may recall, 12 May 2013 was Mother’s Day. It was also the start of a tracking week at KZUM. So, the play list has an obvious theme and reads a little differently. The theme was Mothers and Mother Goddesses. For good reason. And as you can see by looking at the list, we included the recorded label, recording company, or the artist’s name again if it was a self=published CD. This is the first time the list has been posted in this format, we hope you might find it useful.

Any errors are mine. I would appreciate any corrections that you might catch. You can comment to this posting with those corrections.
